• The AI project, unveiled at the Rework Deep Learning Summit in Boston last week, is called Im2Calories and aims to be capable of counting the number of calories in every item on a person's plate simply by examining a photo.
  • The new AI uses "the depth of each pixel in an image" and "sophisticated deep-learning algorithms" to identify food, judge its size and come up with a calorie count. Murphy also said the photo of the food doesn't need to be high-definition for it to work.
  • The team also suggested the same AI could be applied in other ways, such as examining traffic patterns to help drivers find a parking spot.
